Media plays a very important role and has changed it in almost every way. It is considered as the best way to know what’s happening in our world today. Newspaper, magazine, radio, television and internet are the different types of media. It greatly affects our lives because media has the power to change our thoughts. This is sometimes positive and sometimes negative.
Media can make people do things very violent because of what they see on T.V or the games they play. So the children are more aggressive, less trusting and more violent towards people because of these things. This means that they will start bringing weapons in to schools and around streets for example.
Also in the past murders, accidents and deaths were just write to tell you what happened but now a days it is in the news to attract the attention of you. So that means people who reads the news all the time will become more scared and won’t trust people as much, this makes the world a more scarier place to them than it already is.
The earth today seems so small as we can find out what is happening at the other side of the world in seconds through the media. Media is the best way to spread information and news from one part of the world to the other. There are education programs to help people to learn anything through internet, television and radio. Children can improve their skills and education by watching these programs because it is easy to learn stuff that is interesting. Advertisements help us to know the different products people are trying to sell and we can easily make our choices according to what is said. Weather forecast programs tell us about the weather so that we can plan your day. Also the media brings us home all the news what is happening in politics today. Like recently England have just elected a new prime minister with David Cameron and his assistant Nick Clegg. The media also tells us what is right and what is not through the television and through the newspaper.
The media has been accused of causing violent behavior, racism. No one can deny that the media has an effect on our lives, but is the media just giving us what we want to here? Has the media taken away our ability to think for ourselves? Because the easiest way to find information is from the newspapers, television news and weekly news magazines not our heads. It is so easy to just go look on the internet or listen to the television but the reasons why people are not getting high grades at school is because they do not know it from the top of there heads.
We are able to look at what is going in more famous people’s lives, what is happening in other countries and our own country. For example we have found out what has happened in Greece as they have almost gone bankrupt. In other cities there is doubt over whether Greece can solve its debt problems without help from them.
